Best Moments from the Photoshoot for L.A. Weekly's Best of Issue 2012 

39 of 61
L.A. Weekly's Best of Issue 2012, with the theme Dark Fairy Tales, took over two months and 60 crew people to prep, shoot and layout. We shot at The Flying Morgan's real life castle in Laurel Canyon, chained Aladdin (screenwriter Max Landis) up with golden chains and convinced actual mermaid Hannah to be our Little Mermaid. We painted people blue, bought over 800 roses, and had one heck of a great time making these dark wishes come true. Here are some of our favorite images from the Best of Issue.

    Sam's Hofbrau presented "Sam Tripoli's Rock N Pole Championship" this week at The Viper Room.

Entertainment included a special appearance by porn star Tera Patrick, serving as judge, and performing a burlesque number. All photos by Nanette Gonzales.

  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
